5-79.

Kindra would like to have more than $\1500$ in her savings account.

1. If she starts with $\61$ in her savings account, write an inequality to show how much she wants to have.

Given the amount Kindra already has and the amount she wants to have, create an inequality with a variable to represent this problem.

$x + 61 > 1500$
If Kindra wants more than $1500$, then $x$ represents how much she needs to save.

2. How much does Kindra need to save?

Solve the inequality you found above by isolating $x$. What do you get?
